Can a price drop boost Harry Kane’s FPL appeal?

Harry Kane (£11.0m) has been handed an eye-catching starting price by the Fantasy Premier League decision-makers.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker is available for £11.0m going into Gameweek 1, the cheapest he has started a season since 2016/17.

Kane’s 2018/19 ended in frustrating fashion for the England centre-forward, with two separate ankle ligament injuries forcing him to miss ten of Spurs’ final 16 Premier League fixtures.

A total of 160 points represented his lowest FPL score in five seasons as a first-team regular in north London, although 23 attacking returns was more than any of his teammates managed and his points-per-match average of 5.71 was the second-best among FPL forwards in 2018/19.

With Kane’s starting price dropping by £1.5m on what it was 12 months ago, does he again become one of the more attractive premium options in the game?

The Members’ article below delves into the data to analyse Kane’s season and ponder his worth.

    Kun Jota + 0.5 itb or Kane Wilson?

    1. Tommytour
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Kane Wilson are 99% locked in my team

    2. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Jota's schedule is pretty crappy, with Europa league just 2 days before many games.

      So probably the latter. Though if Fraser leaves, Wilson won't get anywhere near as many chances...

    3. Kun Tozser
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Kane and King for me

    4. jason_ni
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I have kane in my team.. but what sacrifice are you making? No sterling or salah?

      1. Coaly
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        I have Salah and KDB too

    5. El Tel
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Kane and King

      1. Coaly
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Surely Wilson will continue to outscore king?

        1. El Tel
          • 6 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Possibly. But 1.5m is enough for me to start with King at least... plus he’s on pens

  2. The Royal Robin
    • 6 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Anyone know anything about Leandro Trossard? Looks like he’s had decent stats for Genk but it’s okay whether he can make the step up to the PL.

    1. NIKO.
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Nope and like you said wait to see what he does in the premier league

    2. Alex_thekid
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      14 goals 7 assists

  3. Kristobal
    • 10 Years

    Does anyone know when Aston Villas new forward signing Wesley will be added to FPL and what the price for him might be?

        Thanks!

    2. Giggs Boson
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      There's apparently an update tomorrow when all the players who were on loan are added. Presumably he'll be added along with them.

      6.0m would make him an interesting option...

      1. Giggs Boson
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Hopefully Dean Henderson is 4.5m and he stays as United's first choice 👿

      2. Kristobal
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Thanks for the input!

        I agree.

    3. Hint
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      He technically hasn't even signed yet so I doubt he'll be on the game until the end of the week.

      I guess at 6 he'd be interesting, but he doesn't look like someone you can rely on for goals.

    Hello. Any thoughts on this 442?

    Ederson button
    TAA VVD digne ASmith taylor
    Salah sterling zaha siggy stephens
    King deulofeu Greenwood.

    I'd rotate Smith and Taylor according the fixture

    Thanks

    1. Dyballer
      • 3 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      It's a pretty strong if not standard team. You've definitely picked up the two most essential premiums and I'm a big fan of the 442 choice.

      Nothing major but personal preference would be to have Robbo over VVD even if it means downgrading Digne to Coleman. Not hugely keen on Deulofeu, but I understand he may have been chosen for fixtures. As much as I dislike his playing style, I reckon Deeney could benefit from a spike in pens whilst the Prem adjusts to VAR. King imo is the best budget striker available. Oh and also consider Fredericks instead of Smith. Taylor really only needs to cover him for GW 1 and 6

    I’d love to have a £7m as my 3rd mid but I can’t shave £0.5 off anywhere. Who do you guys prefer from Perez, Brooks or Redmond?

    1. Super Saints
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I'd start with Brooks but Perez could be great

      1. The 5% Team
        • 3 Years

        put Gross on your 6.5 watchlist

    2. Pennywise
      • 11 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Redmond for me.

    3. El Tel
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Brooks from them. Keep an eye on Gray

    4. OldBenKenobi

      Went Brooks myself

  8. Jimbo74

    What are your thoughts on this lot, folks?

    Ederson
    (Button)
    VVD TAA Coleman
    (Diop, Dunk)
    Salah BSilva Zaha Brooks

    Vardy Wilson Pukki

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.
    Good luck!

    1. El Tel
      • 6 Years

      Wilson to King
      Silva to KDB

      But it’s decent

      1. Jimbo74

        Good shout. Thanks

  9. Babit1967

    It all comes down to these four players which are hard to choose from

    Sterling or Salah

    Kun or Kane

    Currently on Salah and Kun but Sterling And Kane and 1.5 mill extra in team would be nice

    1. Original - Wolves Ay We
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I'm going for Sterling and Salah.

      1. Pennywise
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        What he said.

    2. Jimbo74
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      It is largely a choice from those 4 but we can be safe in the knowledge that anyone who picks all 4 or even 3 has to seriously compromise their squad so I'm content with just Mo. As long as you have a big hitter to captain. Personally, I enjoy having a balanced squad that I can choose from depending on fixtures. It makes for an actual game to play week to week.

      1. Pennywise
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        I may have compromised my picks after the umpteenth revision!

        Currently..

        Ryan
        Robbo, TAA, Laporte, Digne
        Zaha, Sterling, Fraser, Salah (c)
        DCL, King

        1. Jimbo74
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          A nice team if DCL plays even most of the time.

        2. J ⚒ Gimme ur Mané
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 7 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Nice team, DCL is garbage though.

          1. Pennywise
            • 11 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            True, replaced with Murray BHA who'll hopefully still be on spot kick duties. 👿

    3. El Tel
      • 6 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I’m going Salah and Kane. With Bernardo as City cover #PepRoulette

      1. Babit1967
        • 5 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Salah , Kane and squeeze in De Bruyne could b a shout ?

      2. cravencottage
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Except the concept of cover makes no sense. If Kun, Sterling ,KDB all haul and Bilva doesn’t , you aren’t covering anything.

      Defence could be a big issue.

      1. Coaly
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Could do Sterling to KDB, Gomez to TAA

        1. Coaly

          And Bednarek to Alderweireld

      1. The 5% Team
        • 3 Years

        Ederson
        Robbo VVD Digne Diop

        Kane

        bench: fodder

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Terrible team tbh. Playing Jorginho and Dendoncker week in week out is just madness imo

          1. Wild Rover
            • 11 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Harsh but fair

      2. Wild Rover
        • 11 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        I've got one but you'll have to take my word for it 😉

  12. Gringo Kid
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 3 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Lets try for the first time this season 🙂

    Rate my team

    Lloris/Button
    Digne/TAA/Laporte/Robbo/Gibson
    Siggy/Bilva/Salah/KDB/Dendoncker
    King/Deulofeu/Wickham

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Only 1 reliable captaincy option. Would try to squeeze in Sterling, Kane or Aguero

      1. Gringo Kid
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Thanks mate, but I think that one captaincy option is more than enough for first five rounds

        1. FC Hakkebøf
          • 4 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          I like to have at least two good options. Salah might be rested
          once or twice in the opening fixtures because of Africa cup of nations.

  13. FC Hakkebøf
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Which two premium options in midfield/attack do you go for?

    I'm pretty set on Salah. As for the other I'm struggling to choose between Kane, Aguero and Sterling. Currently on Sterling.

    1. Norman Conquest
      • 8 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      currently on salah and de bruyne will have to wait on salah right up to last moment to see if he starts the season

      1. FC Hakkebøf
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Would you trust KDB as a captain? He is not explosive enough for my liking. Brilliant pick but not for the armband imo.

        And yes, it might be smart to go without Salah in the opening fixtures. I thought of this too.

        1. Wild Rover
          • 11 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Unless Salah is ruled out it could be very costly to not have him when many will capt him at home to Norwich. I'm not risking having gw1 ruined. Remember what Suarez used to do to Norwich?

          1. FC Hakkebøf
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Of course I remember. He dismantled them every time. But Suarez and Salah are not the same. And neither are the Norwich team back then and now. But I still agree. But it could be costly having a 12.5 asset being benched the first gameweek because it is indeed a game in which they don't really need him in order to win

            1. Wild Rover
              • 11 Years
              2 years, 2 months ago

              The Suarez comment was tongue-in-cheek. I really don't see Klopp not starting his best players just because on paper it's an easier fixture. He'd be crucified if he did and it went pear shaped

        2. Norman Conquest
          • 8 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          i wouldn't trust him to start with but if he goes on a run then yes i can't afford sterling unless i downgrade salah for mane it payed off quite a lot last year but could backfire massively

    1st time as a member this season. Reached my FPL highest finish ever of 158k so obvs wish to improve on that. Please feel free to tear into this team where necessary. This isn’t my first draft lol

    Alisson

    Digne // TAA // Doherty

    Mané // Bilva // Zaha (Arsenal) // Brooks

    Auba // King // DCL

    Button // Kanté // Ritchie // Kelly

    1. FC Hakkebøf
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Allisson is a waste of a liverpool spot. Wolves bad fixtures (in terms of CS potential at least. Bilva always assisting the assister. DCL rarely gets attacking returns (but has been praised by the coach though). Kante is good value for money, but might be deployed deeper now that Lampard is the coach. Would not trust Auba/Mane with the armband. Too much cash on the bench

      1. Doubter2Believer
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 8 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Much appreciated. I was playing the fixture list more than the trust of the player

    2. danlynch13
      • 6 Years

      Doherty is a big no

      2. Norman Conquest

        having two wolves attackers could be risky due to their europa league involvement maybe downgrade one to fodder and upgrade a midfielder to brooks/fraser/zaha/mili/maddison

        1. jimdearman
          • 3 Years

          Thanks, I will have a play around I think the midfielders may be better value than Jota.

      Double Wolves attack looks excessive with fixtures.
      Rest looks decent outside Cathcart.
      Bench is meh.

      1. jimdearman
        • 3 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Anyone to suggest instead of Cathcart - I only had 4.5 left so was planning to rotate him with Dunk.

          If you are happy with BHA, WHU, SOU/WHU, new, BUR go for it. Just don't see many CS for either.

      Diop, someone from Bournemouth early on.

      Elmo is doing well for Egypt. Might be needing to take it easy after Afcon

    Hiya guys, glad FPL is back! 🙂

    Thrown together this lot, no doubt it'll change lots, but as a first attempt?

    Who are the current potential good budget Strikers? Currently looking at Ings though not sure if wise.

    2. Differential C (Mark)
      • 5 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      At 6.5 - Jota and King are the standout. Deulofeu is interesting.
      6.0 - Ings, DCL, even Sharp
      5.5 - McGoldrick and Kodjia, both on pens for their respective teams.

      1. mikess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        The 5.5s are a canny shout if they get those pens

      2. The Nuttman
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Agree on Jota and King, just not sure I'll be able to easily stretch that far. Agree with Mikess on the pens for 5.5 lads, if they get a good few and can stay in the bonus I think they could be solid investments.

  22. Differential C (Mark)
    • 5 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    How's this effort?

    Ryan
    TAA VanDijk Mendy A.Smith
    Salah Sterling Brooks
    Ings Kane Jota

      2 years, 2 months ago

      Prefer King or Deulofeu for the opening fixtures to Jota personally. Ings can certainly score but he's too injury prone. I'd prefer a 5.5/6 defender and only two up top

    2. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      The premiums need to perform carrying Smith, Brooks, Ings and Jota. Mendy may be an issue.

      Different from most here- i like it

    2. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Not bad for a team with 3 premiums.

      There could be games when you end up with just VVD playing with that defence

  24. Bobby Digital
    • 4 Years

    Kelly (CRY) nailed? Any others for 4m?

      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 12 Years

      If he was, he'd be in lots of teams.
      Wait and see who they buy.

      1. Bobby Digital
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Sound advice.. thx.

    2. The Nuttman
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 9 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      I'd have thought so until they purchase someone.

        kelly def above ward in pecking order?

    Ryan, Fabianski
    Wan-Bissaka, Robertson, VVD, Aarons, Diop
    McGinn, Siggy, Salah, Anderson, Dendocker
    Kane, Deulofeu, Jiminez

    This team is starting to take shape.
    Any improvements I could make?

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      You think AWB will outscore Coleman? Eve and Utd defences were miles apart towards end of last season

      McGinn is on my shortlist I like his style

  26. mikess
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 10 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Ryan (Button)
    TAA, Robertson, Laporte, Coleman (Kelly)
    Salah, Sterling, Sigurdsson, Zaha (Dendoncker)
    King, Deulofeu (Greenwood)

    Fairly happy with this, aware that weak links are keeper and forwards but feel they can tick over to first WC

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Do like this, in fact I'd be tempted to do King to Vardy by downgrading Deulo to Long and TAA and Laporte to VVD and Mendy/Walker

      1. mikess
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 10 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        cheers food for thought

  27. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Which back 3 please?

    A) Robbo/TAA | Mendy/Walker | Coleman
    B) VVD | Mendy/Walker | Digne
    C) VVD | Laporte | Coleman
    D) Robbo/TAA | VVD | Coleman

    D would mean no City defense.

    Thanks!

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      D I think. C with one of the fullbacks is my fave

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Silly me just realised I can't afford D.
        On A atm with Mendy and Robbo

      2. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        And thanks!

    Not really found a lot of 4-5-1 and quickly tossed one together. Could It be viable?

    Ryan
    Taa - Robbo - Mendy - coleman
    Zaha - Salah - Sterling - Redmond - Maddison
    King

    Bench: 4.5 keeper - Kelly - Long - Nketiah

    Pros: strong defensive line excluding gk and if Mendy would be nailed. Good midfield if Redmond continues high up on the pitch.

    Shoot me down plz.

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Probs not much in Redmond vs the 6.5 strikers with the added bonus of the CS/+1 midfielder goal points.

      Could work if you fancy Redmond

    2. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Redmond pick the only one I dislike.

      I'd be tempted to:
      -> Redmond to 4.5
      -> TAA to VVD
      -> King to Vardy

      Having said that you then need to start one of 4.5 mid or Kelly each week

    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • Has Moderation Rights

    2 years, 2 months ago

    Does anyone else wish VVD, TAA and Robbo were 0.5 more?

    1. KAPTAIN KANE
      • 4 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Why for differential?

      1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • Has Moderation Rights
        • 12 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        3 highest points.
        In top 4 defenders by ownership.
        Think FPL missed a trick there but still done a good job.

        1. BROOKLYN FREE AGENT
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years
          2 years, 2 months ago

          Agree. Would barely have changed ownership, I think, which suggests they're underpriced.

          1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • Has Moderation Rights
            • 12 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Would affect other ownerships and stop a few double/tripling on them.

            1. BROOKLYN FREE AGENT
              • Fantasy Football Scout Member
              • 10 Years
              2 years, 2 months ago

              Some, but +1 mil would've _really_ made it interesting...I think they'd all have still been highly owned, even so.

              (full disclosure: planning to triple up at these bargain prices)

              1. TorresMagic™ - 6dcode
                • Fantasy Football Scout Member
                • Has Moderation Rights
                • 12 Years
                2 years, 2 months ago

                True, pretty much have to own at least one or buy a big couch.

    2. Brosstan
      • 7 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      Yep. Would make it harder to choose defenders. Mids and forwards seem well priced, lots of options. But no matter what I do I cant forego two out of the 3 Liverpool defenders.

  30. KAPTAIN KANE
    • 4 Years
    2 years, 2 months ago

    Bit nervous about only 1 Liverpool defender here, and annoying having to play one of Kelly/Dendoncker every week but like the rest:

    Ryan
    Robbo | Mendy | Coleman
    Salah | Sterling | Zaha | Maddison | Dendoncker
    Kane | King

    Button | Kelly | Rico | 4.5 striker

    Do you think 1 pool defender will be OK?

    1. mikess
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 years, 2 months ago

      great bar Dendoncker and Mendy uncertainty. I'd want Noble instead for his pens if I had to play a cheap mid each week

      1. KAPTAIN KANE
        • 4 Years
        2 years, 2 months ago

        Thanks yes though not sure Noble gets many minutes these days?

        1. mikess
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 10 Years

          started last 6 PL game as captain with 2 goals and 2 assists

          1. KAPTAIN KANE
            • 4 Years
            2 years, 2 months ago

            Fair, thanks
